Pre­serve her­itage

Sunday Mail - - OPINION WHAT YOU ARE SAYING VIA SMS -

I HAVE been liv­ing in my her­itage-listed 106-year-old Joslin home for 49 years re­spect­ing and fol­low­ing the her­itage plan­ning rules, in­clud­ing get­ting ap­proval just to re­paint my house.

Next door, aged-care provider Life Care has pro­posed a seven-storey, 24mhigh tower af­ter ini­tially re­leas­ing plans for three­storey de­vel­op­ment.

This ap­pli­ca­tion was al­lowed be­cause of Plan­ning Min­is­ter John Rau’s re­cent changes in rules and does not re­spect the lo­cal her­itage.

I urge him to re­con­sider this project and the ef­fect it will have on the his­toric na­ture of the sub­urb. TONY Di GIO­VANNI
